Samaritan’s Purse Shoebox Project

Summer is flying by, and the back to school routine will soon be upon us. As you start your back to school planning, please keep in mind the Shoebox Project for Samaritan’s Purse.

Also, start saving your sturdy cardboard shoe boxes. You may leave your boxes on the shelves over the coat-racks.

Thank you your support!

VA Hospital Collection Drive

The Board of Human Care is now collecting trial-size personal hygiene
items such as soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and denturecleaning
tablets, in addition to writing supplies such as pens, pencils, and
notebooks for veterans at the VA Hospital. Please no books and no
magazines. There is a basket in the coat room for your donated items.
Thank you for your support!

SCHOOL KITS FOR LUTHERAN WORLD RELIEF

In many developing countries, school is free but school supplies are not, and they can be unaffordable to a poor family. Lutheran World Relief distributes school kits to some of the poorest areas of the world. The Quilters have made school bags, and want to give the congregation an opportunity to help fill them at this time when school supplies are on sale.
If you are interested in helping, there is a list of supplies needed on the table in the FLC hallway. Please plan on buying all items on the list so that you are filling one bag. No extra supplies please. LWR wants each bag to be identical so that each recipient is treated the same. Please plan to have your supplies back by August 12. Questions? Please ask Edy McKinstry or Michele Weingust.

Mission Trip Assistance

ARE YOU CONSIDERING A MISSION TRIP LOCAL OR ABROAD?

St. Trinity may be able to offer some assistance. Thanks to the generosity of past members Don and Gloria Shultz, our congregation has set aside money to assist our members who are involved in missions. Whether your mission trip is local or abroad, we hope we can support your effort to follow God’s calling.
